Trash Can Nuclear Reactors

In yet another win for the belated retrofuture, and yet another reason why its a great idea to fund NASA, researchers have announced that they have made many critical strides into developing a trash can sized nuclear reactor. getting a nuclear reactor down to convenient size may be key into solving many of our energy problems, at the least, it helps in our energy problems with setting up colonies on the Moon and Mars.

Now don't get me wrong, they haven't built one yet, we just have encouraging signs that it is possible and it will work.
